Parking FAQ

Traffic & Parking Ticket Appeals Process

STC provides the following levels of appeals for individuals who feel unjustly cited for traffic or parking violations or if it is believed that a citation was issued in error. All appeals must be submitted to the Traffic and Parking Citation Appeals Committee via the STC parking portal.

  1. Traffic and Parking Citation Appeals Committee: Appeals may be filed with the Traffic and Parking Citation Appeals Committee via the STC parking portal within 15 calendar days from the date of the violation.  Appeals will not be accepted after 15 calendar days from the date of the violation. To file an appeal, students, faculty, and staff must log in to the STC parking portal through JagNet.  Visitors may also submit appeals through the STC parking portal found on the STC Department of Public Safety webpage under Parking.
  2. STC Traffic and Parking Awareness Examination: An individual that has received a citation(s) is eligible to take a one-time parking assessment to waive or reduce parking fines. This does not apply once a wheel lock fine has been issued, or to fire lane and disabled parking violations. A score of 70% or more will result in the adjustment of the fine(s). If the individual fails the examination, they are unable to retake the examination and it is noted on their parking account. The examination is offered as a one-time solution per school year and is conducted online.
